Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 12:55 pm

The eleventh Council of Stellar Management will have its first summit September 12-15 at CCP HQ in Reykjavík, Iceland.

Usually we invite half the CSM to attend in person with the rest of the CSM joining remotely through video conferencing. For this summit, however, CCP has decided to invite all 14 council members to attend in person.

The CSM has gotten off to a strong start and the EVE developers are very excited to spend four days with all of them and getting their expert help in kicking off a great EVE winter!

CSM summits are a great tool for CCP and the CSM to discuss EVE and its future

Do you want to help the CSM prepare for the summit and take an active part in space democracy?

Here's information on how you can reach out to invidiual members.

....and you can always post topics and take part in discussions that are important to you in the Assembly Hall forum section.

Perfect Ten: MMO novel tie-ins
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 2:00 pm
When I was a kid and only slightly more nerdy than I am today, I used to read movie novelizations like crazy. I don’t know why, exactly, especially since I could have just watched the films themselves. I guess it was part of getting swept up with the transmedia hype of a good movie. I probably wore out my copy [...]

The game that makes Kinect worthwhile: 'Fru'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 2:00 pm

When Microsoft announced that it would start selling the Xbox One without the motion-sensing Kinect peripheral in June 2014, Mattia Traverso and his team at Through Games were shocked. They were in the middle of developing a Kinect-exclusive title, Fru, a platformer that used players' silhouettes to uncover hidden ledges and outlets in a Mario-inspired world. The Kinect wasn't off to a roaring start to begin with, but Through Games was down to take a gamble on an innovative idea. Besides, during the first few months of Fru's development, the Kinect was guaranteed to be sold with every new Xbox One. And then, suddenly, that potential was slashed.

"I'd be lying if I said the status of Kinect didn't affect us," Traverso tells me. "The surprise of the unbundling did hit our morale during production, and we had some doubts and worries about whether we would be financially viable at the end."




Have You Played… Microsoft Train Simulator?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. If you’re a fan of blistering bullet trains and beautiful Bo-Bo-Bos, the Train Simulator 2016 DLC list must make depressing reading. Today’s top rail sim seems to have no interest in the iron […]

Pearl Abyss has released a new trailer this morning for its Korean Black Desert players showcasing the game’s progress from its original open beta to now — eight additional classes, two additional regions, pets, non-combat content, and PvP modes. It’s basically a video infographic, and while it’s not perfectly applicable to Daum’s westernized edition, it’s still worth a look since [...]

I knew that new races would eventually come to Landmark! From the beginning it didn’t make any sense to me that Daybreak would ignore something the community really wanted, especially when it obviously had the models already made. The studio showed them off quite publicly. Later, with the (total suckage) cancellation of EverQuest Next, I couldn’t fathom letting those assets go [...]

Áfram Ísland! - Cheer for Iceland in Euro 2016!
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 June 2016, 10:01 am


Picture courtesy of @CCP_Kitteh (he's supporting Iceland in Euro 2016, are you?)

Over here in Iceland right now, there's a little bit of Euro 2016 fever going on as Iceland compete in their first major football tournament.

For many sports experts, it was expected that in their first major tournament Iceland would not make it past the group stages. However, in true traditional viking style it would appear that the Icelandic team have beaten the odds and are through to the knockout stages, facing host nation, France, this Sunday at the Stade de France for the quarter finals.

At CCP, as an Icelandic company born and bred, we've been watching closely and cheering on Iceland during this historic journey, and we want you, the amazing EVE Community, to join in the fun!

With this in mind, we're going to start granting server wide rewards for every active EVE account to celebrate each Icelandic victory in Euro 2016 from here forward, so be sure that you're cheering on Iceland as they attempt to battle their way into the history books!

On the day of each upcoming match, make sure that you're cheering on Iceland and posting pictures to show how you're supporting the team on twitter with the #EVEONLINE hashtag, for the chance to win a few PLEX here and there too!

Here's what will be coming to pilots (one reward per active account) should Iceland advance and win their forthcoming matches:

Quarter Finals Reward

France vs Iceland - Sunday 3 July, 21:00 (Saint-Denis)

  • Thorax Quafe Skin - Permanent
  • 1x Festival Launcher
  • 200x Barium Firework
  • 200x Copper Firework
  • 200x Sodium Firework

 

Semi Finals Reward

Match Time - Thursday 7 July, 21:00 (Marseille)

  • Megathron Quafe Skin - Permanent
  • 200x Barium Firework
  • 200x Copper Firework
  • 200x Sodium Firework

 

Finals Reward

Match Time - Sunday 10 July, 21:00 (Saint-Denis)

  • 1x Skill Injector
  • Hyperion Quafe Skin - Permanent
  • 2x Festival Launcher
  • 400x Barium Firework
  • 400x Copper Firework
  • 400x Sodium Firework

While the odds are being predicted to be against Iceland, here at CCP we're all hoping that they'll advance even further and add even more chapters to this amazing story!

Fear not though - Should Iceland be knocked out of Euro 2016 at any point, we'll still issue a consolation prize:

  • Tristan Quafe Skin - Permanent
  • 1x Festival Launcher
  • 200x Barium Firework
  • 200x Copper Firework
  • 200x Sodium Firework

We do hope that the entire community will join us in celebrating the amazing achievement by the Icelandic team so far, and we hope you'll cheer them on with us in the coming matches! 

Also, we have cake, thanks to CCP Bettik's commitment to smacktalking the competition:
